Thugs in Buhari's home state attack Jonathan’s convoy

Political thugs in the home state of the APC presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), Katsina State on Tuesday attacked the convoy of President Goodluck Jonathan during the continuation of his re-election campaign.

Trouble started when Jonathan, accompanied by Vice President Namadi Sambo; the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu'azu; and Governor Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State among others decided to pay a courtesy visit on the late President Umar Yar'Adua's mother, Hajiya Dada.

As the President and members of his entourage made their ways into the Yar'Adua Quarters, the brooms-wielding youths who were chanting "Sai Buhari" surged forward.

Security agents had a hectic time dispersing the crowd.

The youths regrouped and again moved to attack the President's convoy as he was ready to leave the Yar'Adua's residence.

Security agents had to fire tear gas canisters to disperse the youths to allow vehicles in the convoy of the President to speed off.

As the presidential delegation made their way towards the Katsina Airport, the youths hurled stones at the convoy.

No case of injury was however reported.
